Don't get me wrong, I like the show Alias just fine. I like Jennifer Graner just fine, though I am not quite as ga-ga over her as many men in America are. THe show went down hill a bit after two spectacular seasons, with occasional great episodes along the way. Last year improved a bit and the ending had the show poised for a season to rival the early ones.
I am a bit derailed by the whole pregnancy bit. I agree that it is a great idea to incorporate it into the show. In reality I could see a cia agent in this case taking a greater role "behind the scenes" with intermittent inclusion in non-dramatic/perilous tasks. All to have a hugely trimuphant return when the baby is born complete with guns "ablazin' " and butt-kicking.
Unfortunately, as is often the case JJ Abrams and I do not have the same vision. It looks like they are going to have her cont ridiculous stunts throughout the pregnancy. This is insane and so far to the unrealisitic spectrum that it distracts me from the show. I wish they had followed the idea I mentioned above and use this season as an opportunity to develop another character or even introduce another hot substitute ass kicker with conflicting personality with Sydney.
i hate to complain too much before I have seen exactly how this all pans out, but hey it's my nature.
